Ding! Dong! The Wicked Witch is Dead!

This one could be a doozey, so pull up your favorite chair or couch and have a sit. While you are at it, grab yourself a drink and something to munch since Steve informed me that the blog has no food or drinks. HAHAHAHA
Well, the title is a bit expressive of how I feel. Just take dead out and turn it into gone and that is a good summary. I will start by saying I'm not admitting to anything here or saying I did anything, I'm just stating what has happened. So, the handler of Sausage Dog has made it up in her mind there is no possible way Guide Dog's could have known about her dog being so fat or having health problems unless I told them. Resulting from her thinking that she no longer talks to me. This explains the title. I'm kind of happy about this, because she wasn't exactly the greatest friend for me. She was full of constant drama, whining, bitching, and an all together bring you down kind of person. So, I feel lots better now that she is gone.
Here is a clip of the song:
Ding!Dong! The Wicked Witch is Dead!

To keep with this Wizard of OZ theme, Here is how I feel about the situation and
maybe I should have a heart?
I've been really busy with school that I haven't had much time to think about much, other than school. Calculus and Statistics are kicking my butt though. Well Calculus more than Statistics though. I'm really liking my 1960s literature class and Marketing is a bit redundant in some parts.Still trying to finish some of those classes left from last semester. I only have 2 left to finish now. I did finish my Wellness/Fitness class by completeing 3 miles in the allotted 1 hour time limit given to everyone. I was told that no matter what I finished I would still get full credit, that just fueled me to finish in time even more. Leah didn't like it much, but I was pumped after I finished and very proud of myself. So, I got an A for that class. I also ended up with a B in biology after everything was done. Business Law likes a quiz, a final, and a research paper. My freshman orientation class is just waiting on the teacher to tell me what is left to finish. I still can't believe that I'm graduating this May and its only the first step in a long journey lol.
Here is another song that reminds me of Calculus and Statistics:
Calculus and Statistics, YUCK!
In my spare time, which there seems to be little of, I've been watching American Idol. I know I crossed over to the dark side, but Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson's chemistry really makes it interesting for me. I've picked my favorite guy who auditioned in Austin. I love him while everyone I know hates him. Maybe you guys might like him.
Casey Abrams audition in Austin
He has that very bluesy/jazzy sound. Which deep down and in a place I'm not too scared to admit I have...I love this kind of music. I'm a sucker for something different I guess.
Here is one of my favorites of his. In this video, he is doing his solo performance in Hollywood during Hollywood week or as the judges called it "Hell Week" He is keeping the pretense of being different and plays an upright bass.
Casey's solo during Hollywood week
This one has to be my most favorite performance of his to date:
Not sure who originally does this song, but I love it
Sorry for the onslaught of links, but another few are coming :) This has to be one of my least favorite performances of his, even though I really like the song.
I Put a Spell on You
This is the most recent performance I could find, and he still gives me goosebumps with his voice.
Most recent performance and I just love it!
So this week is spring break, but not for me I'm spending it doing homework. Well Tuesday I'm going shopping with a couple of friends of mine, that ought to be fun :) Everyone needs a break from time to time right?
Gosh, May 5th I'll be done at this college and moving on to another one to finish my bachelors degree. But this summer I get to go to Vegas. That trip has me a bit nervous. I'm flying there by myself and may get there before Taylor and his friend get there. We are going to Vegas to be there for Taylor's best friends wedding. Taylor has been knighted best man. I am making sure someone gets me pictures since Taylor is supposed to wear a suit and this boy is the last person I would have ever thought to be seen in a suit. I think its going to be lots of fun if I can relax and not worry about the minor details. Thats alot of my problems, I over think stuff and over analyze it to death. Life would be so much better if I could just learn to turn my brain off and relax. So that is my goal for the Vegas trip, to relax.
I'm trying to talk my mom into taking me home after graduation, well back to their house, to have a graduation party. I'm sure they won't want to do it, but I really want a graduation party. You may ask why would I want a graduation party now?
Well the answer is simple, I didn't have a graduation party after my high school graduation. My party consisted of TV,my hospital cup full of ice water, my parents couch, and good strong pain meds. My high school graduation was 3 days after I had surgery the first time, the time they installed all this hardware. so, yeah I was just glad to make it through graduation without getting violently ill.
So, to make up for that I want to party this time, for this graduation. Its a bit much to ask for, but I really want it! To be able to celebrate my accomplishment with old friends and my family will be so awesome!
Well, hmm, I would also like to thank Steve for giving my blog back after he hijacked it.
Here is a little Public Service Announcement just for Steve:
Stop using the word"Tweeps" and "Tweople" those words just make you sound like a dork.
No really, it is just that most people find them really annoying...and my PSA sucked....I guess I need some more marketing classes.

****Pay no attention to those people behind the curtain****
Well, everyone else has gone to bed so I guess its my turn.
I promise, I'll try to update more often and make time for this little place I call my internet home :)

Night everyone and sweet dreams!
Amanda Ellen and Leah


  1. You should really blog more often; it's fun to read. I hope you have some better luck planning the trip, and glad you got rid of the stress of the wicket witch. I'll have you know, that damn song has been in my head all day, so just for that, goodnight, tweep.

  2. HaHa, I most certainly will try. Glad I could help..I watched the movie before I wrote this post :) Better watch out, Steve is going to get you!


Feel free to comment, but don't take advantage of no captias or needing to be approved. If you do I'll have to change :)
